|The Darkest Night by Sakura no Miko|
|It's incomplete, but with only the finale and epilogue to go.|
The way that the authoress writes angst actually makes you ache with the characters. The plot is AU but done in such a way that you believe it. There is so much beauty in this. From the descriptions of a rag doll to the descriptions of the way Subaru feels.
The classic themes of love and death are echoed here from the original canon, but it's so refreshing to see Subaru dedicated to Seishirou, rather than constantly trying to push him away. The authoress also understands the absurdity of Subaru's love, and doesn't just blindly allow the relationship to blossom.
Even though this fiction is incomplete, you can see that the end is very close and it should be done before christmas. The most beautiful X1999 fanfiction I've ever read.
|Sakura and Snow by Natalie Baan|
|The undoubtedly best Tokyo Babylon/X fiction I've come upon. The characters seem real and even though Seishirou is cold-hearted, his love for Subaru will make readers forgive him. It's amazing to follow how he learns to feel and trust. Of course, the hot sex just might be part of his appeal...|
